Dutch chipmaker NXP Semiconductors on Tuesday said it had entered a strategic relationship with Amazon.com's cloud computing unit to help cars communicate with data centers.

NXP is one of the biggest suppliers of computing chips to automakers and Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud computing service by revenue.

The companies said the partnership would involve making a new NXP chip designed to aggregate data from a car's systems and send it over the internet to work better with Amazon's data centers.
